HAMWORTHY United boss Brendon King hailed the impact of winger Edgar Zanin following their 2-1 win at Bashley on Tuesday.

Former Weymouth reserves man Zanin started his first game of the season and played a part in both goals as Hammers secured their first Wessex Premier victory of the season.

Asked about Zanin, King told the Daily Echo: “He had been coming off the bench and making an impact. He deserved a chance and did well in being involved with both of the goals.

“That’s what has to happen. People have to be patient and, when they have their chance, they have to take it.”

Hammers went 1-0 up early when a corner from Zanin came off Bash’s Brad Morris and fell into the net for an own goal.

The hosts responded through Raemur Henry, who netted his second goal in as many games to level the contest.

But, after changing their shape, Hammers got the winner in the second half when Zanin cut in from 18 yards and shot into the corner.

Elsewhere in the division, a goal from Matthew Casey was not enough for Brockenhurst as they fell to a 2-1 reverse at Amesbury Town.

The hosts' goals came through Harry Beckley and Cameron Roach, son of Cherries Academy manager Joe Roach.
